Citabria Update – June 30, 2016

I had the starter and alternator inspected.  The started needed new brushes and the alternator needed to be replaced.

Here is the old alternator …

It is a Prestolite PN ALE 6406 (12 v) which is no longer available.  I purchased a new AL12P70 ‘Plane Power’ Light Weight Alternator.

It was also time for a new battery so I picked up a RG25XC Maintenance Free Concorde battery.

Aviation Supplies at the Oshawa Municipal Airport had the replacement parts in stock, so it was a short drive to pick them up this morning.
